We all know that there is no place like home. In my case, I am so happy to have two of them. While I’ve lived in the UK since 2006, I was born and bred in Bytom, Poland. This week marks the turning point in my life. Namely, I no longer will travel because I have to, but if and when I want to. This is due to the fact that a few days ago I had my last orthodontic visits in Poland. (yay!) Although the weather was beautiful and sunny, the temperature was rather freezing. It was minus 10 during the day and minus 26 by night. Leaving home without a proper winter hat, scarf, gloves and coat was impossible. I only had three days to visit my family and to do stuff I had planned.
Day one was mainly dedicated to see all my doctors, dentists and orthodontics. Day two was slightly more pleasant. I did manage to see my older brother. He’s currently working out for his first body building competition. A rigorous diet and long hours at the gym are hard for him but the results are just WOW! Even though his day schedule is quite tight, he couldn’t say no to a tea with his sis.
Day three was definitely my favourite one. First thing in the morning, I went to my little brother’s primary school. His group put on a performance for their grannies and granddads. I’ve missed so much of his early years, and I felt an urgent need to go and be with him during this event. As soon as I found myself in the building, I felt as if I was 6 again. Nothing has changed! Nan was already waiting for me. We rushed upstairs not to miss anything. All of the kids were amazing. And myself among them, just a proud older sister. After the play, we went for cookies and tea and to the park to celebrate.
